Leeds Specsavers collected over 2900 pairs of glasses for Vision Aid Overseas in 2014 and is once again collecting unused frames at the store on Albion Street. Customers can get involved in the appeal by dropping their old frames into the in-store collection bin, which will then be donated to Vision Aid Overseas.
A word from the Director
Mark Richardson, store director at Leeds Specsavers, commented: ‘In Britain we are used to having access to excellent eyecare on our high streets but most people in Zambia are not as lucky so it’s important we do what we can to improve eye health there.
There must be thousands of spare specs lying around in drawers around the country that are no longer of use to their owners. All donations are welcome.’
Continued support for Vision Aid Overseas
Specsavers has worked closely with Vision Aid Overseas for the last decade and is continuing to do so. In this time, the opticians has raised more than £800,000 and has collected in excess of 250,000 pairs of glasses.
